Only a breath apart
Our souls
Wrapped around
Each other
In this highly anticipated

Forgotten worlds
Vowed promises
Reflect from your eyes
I recognize you

So much to say
Yet I lose my ability to speak
In any other language
Than unconditional love

My heart begs me
To reveal you
My solution
Promise you
We will make it
To the other side
Of our forever

I am not
The writer
Of your destiny

I just hold your face
In my palms
And wait…
For your lips
To greet mine

Silently praying
You’d inhale
Even a little bit
Of the faith
That whirls
In me

The song
We used to hum
Turns into a sweet duet

When our lips touch
And we breathe hope
In eternal harmony

Our Symphony

Two silhouettes
In the fragile moonlight

Dreamy glances
Play an inviting
Yet silent prelude
Until the breathless sighs
Begin to echo
In the stillness

Ascending anticipation
Increasing need
To play the symphony
That never
Grows old
But always vibrates
Within us

Our hearts drum in unison
With each
Yearning beat
A passionate masterpiece
Gets louder and stronger
Like a midnight thunder

Beautifully orchestrated
The finale


Quivering in harmony
We outshine the moon

La Solitudine

A deserted beach
Only in my heart

Deep divine sea
Crystal blue sky
By the hopeful beams
Of the maternal sun

The careless wind blows
Bittersweet memories
Unlived dreams
From the times
When I was
Your long-awaited
Once in a lifetime


An unknown destination
On the horizon
Veiled by the tender mist
Of my past

Eyes closed
Breath held
I imagine

The sound
Of your
Returning footsteps


In solitude

How I long to pull you close
Feel our hearts beat sacred symphony – in unison
Drift off to sensual laziness
Nothing but warm skin between us

Trace the fullness of your curves
With my curious fingertips
Paint an everlasting love scene
Write a sweet haiku
On your skin

Admire your sleepy gaze
The emerald eyes filled with passion and peaceful calm
Read out lyrical creations – for your ears only
Fall asleep bodies tangled, fingers entwined
Dream together – in safe bliss

Tonight is not one of those nights
But still I love you here
Arms wrapped around you – from miles away
A step closer to the breathtaking dawn
That shines in the colors of your soul

Kiss the Rain

The recognition
An indescribable sensation

The enlightenment
Of the heart
The awakening
Of the soul

When something long-lost surfaced
My forgotten destination
My fate

Your eyes
Mirrors that have reflected
My soul
In so many different faces

My guiding lights
Through countless lifetimes
Of searching and finding

Your voice
A sound like no other
An echo from the past
Filled me
With the feeling of safety
And soared through me
Like a butterfly storm

The feeling
Of not belonging
Is finally making sense

Every word I’ve written
Every path I’ve chosen
And the song I’ve hummed
During the journey
Has carried me back
To where I belong

All I had to do was listen…

The Story

The Senses of Love

Your breathless whisper
In my ear
Sensuous notes
Of love and lust
This is what my heaven
Sounds like

The sunrise
In your eyes
As we tie a lovers’ knot
In body and soul
This is what my heaven
Looks like

The heat
Of your bare body
Resting upon mine
As we enjoy our lazy day
This is what my heaven
Feels like

The flavor
Of your desire
On my lips
Making me yours – completely
This is what my heaven
Tastes like

The aroma
Of your smooth skin
Filling the air
With pure seduction
This is what my heaven
Smells like

This photograph speaks to me. I can relate to this beautifully vulnerable and fragile atmosphere.

“Echoes and Reflections” blog started a week ago (on WordPress). I’m blown away by the love, support and encouragement I have received. I’ve found so many extremely gifted poets and writers out here – you inspire me tremendously. I’m truly blown away by you all, and so humbled that you’ve decided to join me on my journey. Thank you.

No Words

I want to write you
A sensual story
Of yearning

A poem
That will never
Come to an end
But burns and flows
Like our kisses

And every time
Our lips meet
A new verse forms

I want to write you
A powerful ballad
Of love

A song
That will become
A part of your heartbeat
Always reminding you
Of your own importance

I want to write you
A mysterious novel
That goes back
To the beginning of time

A classic
That needs
No words
But is understood
At that moment
When our souls
Dance together
In the same space

A promise
Of undying love
That my eyes
Will speak
Every day
Until the end of time

Only an Ocean Away

A walk by the sea
Of my own imagination
Searching for the words
For one of the many
Yet unwritten compositions
My soul sings
Without lyrics

Aiming to still portray
How it felt to love her –
With all of me
How it felt to be adored –
By her heart
How her soul entwined with mine
In the deepest meaning of the word:

The longing north wind
Quietly weeps her name:
soft, melodic and merry

I don’t have to wander
The trails of yesterday
So that I could find her again
She is still in a sacred place
Where I once welcomed her

The slumbering waves sigh
They evoke memories of the moments
When we fell asleep hand in hand
When my touch was more than a touch

I whisper my four lettered confession
To the place
Where the sea joins the sky
With an invisible kiss

Infinite sea,
Please carry my love to her shore
To the place
Where she nourishes her soul

Tell her
I’m never alone
On my endless exploration journey
There is always hope
Walking by my side
Gratitude in my heart

The memory of our love
